How can I ever forget you
You don't know just what I've been through
The holiday we spent together
Lives with me now and forever.

I tried but I can't find you
Tell me now what do I do
I tried but I can't find you
Tell me now what do I do.

I can't find my piece of mind
Because I need you with me all of the time
I used to think about you night and day
I used to feel what language cannot say
Oh I can't find you
No I can't find my piece of mind without you.

Maybe you'd write me a letter
And tell me why I never met you
Our rendezvous just ended in sorrow
Without you there's no tomorrow.

I tried but I can't find you
Tell me now what do I do
I tried but I can't find you
Tell me now what do I do.

I can't find my piece of mind
Because I need you with me all of the time
I used to think about you night and day
I didn't care what other people would say

Oh I can't find you
No I can't find my piece of mind without you.
I can't find my piece of mind
Because I need you with me all of the time

I used to think about you night and day
I used to feel what language cannot say
Oh I can't find you
No I can't find my piece of mind without you.

Ibiza, Majorca, and Benidorm too
I've searched all these places but never found you.

    A lot of the songs on Technique are, lyrically, about Bernard's divorce that he was going through at the time. He has been accused of writing plain and obvious lyrics, but when he delivers lines like "I can't find my piece of mind/Without you," it really hits home.

    Excellent track, one of the best from a great LP.

    My Interpretation

    To me, this sounds like the love letter that a touring musician wants to send to a fling he had while on tour, who he sees as something more, but cannot get in contact with because their affair was cut short by the constantly moving schedule. I've written this very letter, and the bond one forms with lovers while on tour is like nothing else. You can't really define the affection you feel towards them. "Ibiza, Majorca, and Benidorm too I've searched all these places but never found you" shows that he's been all over the world, but he cannot remember what city she's from.

    I initially thought the translator had spelled peace (of mind) wrong. However, piece works too.

    If it is intended as piece rather than peace then that's very clever lyric writing. Top marks.

Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
